Actor Michael J. Fox and rock legend Robbie Robertson will be honoured for their achievements with the prestigious Order of Canada medal on Friday (27May11).
The Back to the Future star is to be handed the prize for his charity work and awareness drives for Parkinson's disease, a condition he was diagnosed with in the early 1990s, while Robertson has landed the award for services to music.
The Canadian-born stars will receive their medals at a ceremony in Ottawa.
